First genital warts are a sexually transmitted disease transferred through direct contact. Also they are highly contagious. Genital warts can also lead to cervical and anal cancer. Other warts are not as contagious as genital warts.

All varieties of warts are caused by the Human Papillomavirus. Some subspecies of the virus causes warts on the face, the most common causes warts on the hands, and a few others cause warts in and around the pubic area. Otherwise they're very similar.


Answer by  John (9008)

They are caused by different germs. Also, they differ in how contagious they are. Regular warts are not at all contagious, and cannot be spread by contact. Genital warts, however, are very contagious and very easily spread sexually. The treatments also differ; it is much more difficult to get rid of genital warts.
